I have got the oppurtunity to buy an 2002 wr426 which is all stock and in perfect shape for 2grand
Keep your XR, btw, how much is it to ship a WR from Ohio to FL???

The WR is very reliable if you just do the maintenance. Change the oil and filter regularly with good quality oil and clean the air filter. It's a little more work to check the valves but it's not bad and it's a much more advanced setup. Mine only required adjustment 1 time in 1600 miles and they were barely out of spec. Also, do the maintenance on the fork seals as described in the manual and they'll last a lot longer.
For $2000, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

This site has all the free mods, and a few that cost a little bit, that you can do to your bike. The site is for the 250s, but the info is the same. Just go by what is says for the 02WR250f. BTW, the GYT-R exhaust tip for the stock pipe makes a decent amount of power with minimal noise increase. If you don't care how loud it is just take it out.
